Was the Gospel of St. Luke written by Mary, Jesus’s mother? Was Jesus the son of an architect, not a carpenter?

The Gospel of St Luke was actually written by Jesus’ mother, Mary, making it the first female book in the Bible, a writer has claimed.

Dr Adam Bradford believes the document people have come to know as the Third Gospel began life as a legal defence document in a trial.

Luke, a Greek physician, was tasked with writing a letter of support for St Paul who was imprisoned in Rome for the political crime of supporting Jesus…


It’s a somewhat different version of the greatest story ever told.

Rather than being born in a stable to a carpenter father, Jesus was actually the son of a successful, middle-class and highly intellectual architect.

The claim comes from biblical scholar Dr Adam Bradford, who also says that between the ages of 12 and 30 – the so-called ‘missing years’ of Jesus’s life, when little is known about him – he was studying at religious schools and became the highest-ranking rabbi in Judea.

The radical revision of Christian history would suggest that, in preaching the spurning of worldly possessions for an austere life, Jesus may have been speaking from experience.

Dr Bradford has analysed the Bible’s original Greek and Hebrew scriptures to try to establish the truth about Christ’s background.

He says a mistranslation of the Greek word ‘tekton’ to describe the profession of Joseph, Jesus’s father, is one of many mistakes that have led to a fundamental misunderstanding of Christ’s character.

Dr Bradford claims that while ‘tekton’ is usually said to mean carpenter, it more accurately means master builder or architect. As an architect, Joseph would have had a higher social status that enabled him to better educate his son.

There is no Idea Dump, no Story Central, no Island of the Buried Bestsellers

“Let’s get one thing clear right now, shall we? There is no Idea Dump, no Story Central, no Island of the Buried Bestsellers; good story ideas seem to come quite literally from nowhere, sailing at you right out of the empty sky: two previously unrelated ideas come together and make something new under the sun. Your job isn’t to find these ideas but to recognize them when they show up.”
― Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

There’s a Very Special Full Moon Tonight!


Just after midnight there will be a “Blood moon eclipse” in which the moon will take on a reddish cast. A lunar eclipse occurs when the sun, Earth and moon line up so the Earth’s shadow falls on the moon, causing it to darken. According to Sky and Telescope magazine, the one on April 15th will begin at 1:20 a.m. on the US’s East Coast.

Also, speaking of red, Mars will be shining in all of its red glory right next to the moon!
